You say you aren't giving any meaning to that scripture is a lie. It's you who says its proof of God so yes you are giving meaning to "hangs on nothing". Also the earth is not hanging at all hanging implies it is stable and unmoving yet we know it isn't. Face it your arguement has no glue to hold it together.


To the contrary, you people are the ones giving meaning to it. You said:

"hanging implies it is stable and unmoving".

You actually did NOT complete the sentence and focused on " hanging implies it is stable and unmoving".

While the quoted words say "hanging on nothing".

See what I mean?

"Hanging on nothing" implies that it's hanging or suspended in empty space with nothing tangible holding it.

It's so simple.

Hanging on nothing simply means nothing visible is holding it. In fact, it can move anywhere. It's just that NOTHING VISIBLE is holding it in place - in space.

Please tell me, where in the words "Hanging on nothing" implies "it is stable and unmoving"?

Really if you understand the words "hanging on nothing" then it would be plain to you.

Look ma "no hands" implies what?

Its not suspended either...

its moving... so is the star we orbit...



again the subject is place or its location is space not its rotation or orbit.

Let's get one thing straight...
God is my salvation...
God is not my religion...

It may be a dated science book but it contains science...
So I don't really agree the mathematics alone says that is not true...
Then you could take the information about the importance of building on a rock foundation...
Etc...
So I say you are wrong...
So not all Science contained in the bible is outdated...
And some things were far ahead of thier time...
Like the fact Stars make noise as referenced in the bible as those singing stars...
Such things are in direct correlation with science and ate accurate...


So again... vague allusions to some things....

Which by the way is not science...

The bible isn't a science book... it does not contain "science" at all... it wasn't ever meant to be a science based book...

Its like saying Dr. Seuss has science in it because it says "i will not eat green eggs and ham"... Well ham exists... Thus it must be science

To the contrary, you people are the ones giving meaning to it. You said:


And you said:

Ok - what's the earth resting on?
Remember?

The Earth is neither hanging or resting. It is not suspended. It is falling.





again the subject is place or its location is space not its rotation or orbit.
Ok. What is Earth's place in space? What is its location?

The earth is not a fixed place in space... its constantly moving around our star. Which is constantly moving around the "black hole" in the center of our Galaxy... which is moving away from its point of origin...

Theres nothing stationary... or fixed.... Hanging... or suspended...

The science contained as a teaching of how to do things based in science not faith in God...
Well that says you are wrong...

You just quoted some dogma neighbour, in that is a belief or set of beliefs that is accepted by the members of a group without being questioned or doubted. Thus you quoted a religious belief, implying you follow a religion.

My Gods, my ancestors, and the spirits of nature are part of my religion. Note that bit in there beginning with p....part thus making up a portion of the religion. Just as your God Jehovah/Allah is part of the Abrahamic faiths. You can not have Christianity, Islam, or Judaism with out Allah/Jehovah.

I already have...
There is math in the bible that is science...
It does not matter how vague it is...
the fact scientific references are made is clear...

You keep focusing on that even though it's not proof of anything but you haven't assessed the other dozen proofs that scripture is not scientifically accurate .Neither is hanging as you've been told by about 6 people in this thread. The earth is not hanging it's moving. There is a big difference between hanging and moving or hanging and swinging.

So what about all the other bible verses I presented which contradict modern science? Are you ever going to a dress them? Or are you just going to keep playing games?

Show the science, that is the simplest way to do it. Rather than engage in insults, pony up the evidence.

Mathmatics is not necissarily a science. I've pointed out before that for something to be a science it needs to "study of the structure and behaviour of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment." One can play around with numbers and prove nothing about the "physical and natural world". This is why universities can offer you degrees in mathematics as either a BSc or a BA.
